the democrats need 17 seats. there's a reason why barack obama has transitioned his political operation into this non-profit messaging operation to reinforce the direction he wants to go with the country at the grassroots level to target those seats. i don't see how and where the republican party beyond, you know, calling a committee meeting here and there has been on the ground in neighborhoods doing the very difficult, out-of-the-box work relating to voters. and so unless they do that, unless they message is really honed and fine-tuned, it's going to be very difficult to hold on as the president's momentum grows. we'll see what happens in response to the state of the union. we'll see what happens in response to immigration and other issues. but, right now, to your point, i think we've got a lot of work to do and it starts with making sure that you have your base behind the steps you want to take. you just can't go out and say, oh, obama is a bad guy, follow us. >> now, governor, talking about base behind, political says the rnc meeting focused on broadening the appeal to minority vote
business. thank you, bradly cooper. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, the obama doctrine. erasing the mistakes of the bush presidency. today, the president's nominee for defense secretary chuck hagel testified in his confirmation hearings on capitol hill. hagel was in the spotlight, but it was bush's war in iraq that was really on trial. conservativ conservative conservatives despise hegel, but they despise him because of the iraq war. they fear hegel because he's a warrior, a vietnam vet with two purple hearts who knows how war should be fought and should not be fought and how war should be the last resort. >> in my 12 years in the senate, my one guiding principle on every security decision i've made and every vote i cast was always this, simply this. is our policy worthy of our troops and their families and the sacrifices that we asked them to make. >>> i saw it from the bottom. i saw what happens. i saw the consequences and the suffering and
political realignment underway in this country. and wliel obama realigns, the republicans are in decline. and they really have three choices. one of which they've seenl to have already gotten rid of. secondly, they can destabilize the economy. that's what they tried to do for years moving up toward the 2012 election. it didn't work. but i think they might try it again. paul ryan on meet the press last sunday sounded very interesting in letting the sequestration go into effect, which we saw today would have bad effects on the economy. third, in lincoln's phase, they could disenthrall themselves. but when you look at what happened to marco rubio in the last day, senator david vitter of louisiana called him amazingly naive. i think the republican party is trapped between what it has to do to succeed and survive and its tea party elements which are going to ghand purity. >> now when you look at cynthia, the fact that american people say clearly that any number opposed support the president's agenda, 53% support same-sex marriage, 62% support a path to citizenship for immigrants. 80% say clim
in politics who give the voice. don't show any contrast. so by the third debate, i'm pretty certain mitt romney actually french kissed baraco obama. >> wow, with friends like those, maria. >> it was interesting what paul ryder started doing. >> i won't be surprised if they start taking on policy. i don't know if they want mitt romney out in front of him. what they do want is his access to the war chest. while they may not be courting him in public and basically touting him as the idea of brilliant ideas, they will be calling on him to make sure that he's calling those billionaires that basically did the citizens united so effectively that tarnished the name of the president. it's behind closed doors and the american people can't see what he may be up to. >> you know, bash, you've been in politics for a while and you've led some of the campaigns in our time. i think you need big people to big things. it was reported that not only was he going to skip the inauguration -- and he was the first losing candidate to do that since '89. that's one thing. but an aide went onto say and he had no pl
an eye on these little buggers. they've got their mickey mouse ears on. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, president obama won. this president has no time to waste and he's using it to push for change on gun control, on immigration, on climate change, on ending the ban on women serving in combat. he's got a full agenda. and it was on full display today. remember all of that bluster from governor romney about undoing wall street reform, letting consumers fend for themselves? yeah, not going to happen. today, the president nominated hits to both the sec and the consumer protection bureau. the message? we're moving forward. anyone guess where we'll be if the other side were in charge? >> what do you want me to tell romney? i can't tell him to do that: he can't do that to himself. >> that chair, that chair was the sill bomb of everything wrong with the gop. an embarrassment on the biggest stage. the gop literally became a joke. wonder where that chair is today? here it is, the clint eastwood chair. it
